In the wake of a stabbing attack on the University of Texas at Austin campus that left one dead and three injured, a new campus-area restaurant is holding a fundraiser to benefit a memorial fund for the student that died.
The Pizza Press (404 W. 26th St.) opens May 4. According to a news release, the restaurant will donate all profits from sales through May 7 — up to $3,000 — to the Harrison Brown Memorial Fund. “Guests can also make anonymous donations in any amount through provided gift card envelopes or electronically when paying for their beverages or meal,” according to a news release.
The memorial fund for Brown blew past its goal of $100,000 in just a day, earning more than $127,000 as of 2 p.m. Wednesday. The money, organizers told the Statesman, will be donated to Brown’s family.
